In our world, “estate” refers to everything you own – home, cars, boats, furniture, bank accounts, jewelry, life insurance, etc. True estate planning goes beyond possessions and assets, though, and plans for a variety of important factors that right now may seem like they are too far in the future. This includes:
Determining which loved ones are good at handling money and other responsibilities
Detailed instructions for your care should you become disabled before you die
Choosing appropriate guardians or additional care for minors and loved ones with special needs
How many companies you own will be sold or transferred and proceeds dispersed
How to minimize taxes and unnecessary fees
Contingency plans for planned changes as well as unexpected changes
Having a carefully crafted plan in place before you die that goes beyond a “who gets what” set of instructions is a conversation you should have sooner rather than later. Having total control over how that process plays out is invaluable. Estate planning puts your affairs in order, so you have peace of mind knowing your loved ones can carry out your wishes once you are gone.
